Walnut Bowl from free wood gift

I got this walnut piece from SawDustFactory last month.

It's 4-1/4" by 1-1/2" in size.
It had a split in the side that I was almost able to turn out and a couple of holes in the bottom.
When finishing the bottom I notice the holes; tried to fix with CA and sawdust (not expecting it to bleed thru to the finished inside!- MY BAD). By then my tenon had been turned down to small to grab with my chuck.
I need to work on getting my bottom smoother and I had some chatter along the upper edge I was quite able to get out with a fresh sharpened scraper.

At least I didn't make another funnel!
I'll keep it handy to remind myself of things to watch for in other bowls

Nice job Marshall. I tend to look at those little worm holes as natures embellishments and try to leave them alone or even highlight them if I can.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...
